There are many guide books, competition related magazines, model questions and question banks etc available in the market and one can prepare for this coveted exam with the help of those reading materials. This is the general trend people follow but here one thing which matters most is what is your background knowledge. Are you starting your preparation from today itself or you had this thing in mind long back and you have already done a lot of home work for this.
This is very important because if the base is not solid the coming structure will be week and unstable.
Anyway we can not go back in the time but we have to compensate that by giving more time now to cover up those things which other aspirants might had done earlier in lower classes.
This is one reason why many people advise the IAS aspirants to go through the text books of class VIII to XII again at this stage. You will not have scarcity of books in this respect but the main thing is how much you can exert and go on doing hard work to achieve this prestigious target.
Thoughts exchanged is knowledge gained.
